to the george h.w. bush international airport. obviously, houston is one of the busiest airports and flown in and out of there and maybe seen the campus before. there are about 28,000 undergraduate students, who attend lonestar college and we have no idea how many were on campus this afternoon when there were shots fired beau we know there was an emergency alert e-mail spent out to every student and cafaculty member and harris college locked down. immediately take shelter where you are, do not enter the campus until notified further. we saw students and faculty being evacuated and also saw people taken away on stretchers. mark smith is the public relations officers and administrator for harris counties emergency operation. and mark, thanks for being here. >> what do we know. >> i can add details for you. our agencies transported three to the hospitals in houston and one of our level one trauma centers and also to houston northwest medical center. from what i understand was, in talking with our dispatch personnel, one of our neighboring agencies, cyprus creek e.m.s. also transported an indi

for the benghazi attack any more than george w. bush was responsible for the 9/11 attacks or ronald reagan was responsible for the attacks on our marine barracks in beirut which killed over 200 marines. frankly, whether it was called a terrorist attack or not. in the immediate aftermath as far as i'm concerned is irrelevant. we just have to make sure that it never happens again. so that in the future, our people are protected. that's what, what i want to get out of all of this. so madam secretary, we commend you for accepting the arb recommendations and welcome you implementing them before you leave the department. even before the arb submitted conclusions the department moved to address certain shortcomings for which increased security proposal, the vast majority of the funding for this proposal would come from funds previously appropriated for lower priority programs. and hope congress will move without delay to give the department the transfer authority it needs to start applying these changes. it is important to remember that security is not a one-often did he ever, indeed it's a long-

bill clinton and marc thiessen, a former speech writer for george w. bush. and senator johnson didn't get a chance to answer the question that secretary clinton asked of him. what difference it make, why the people at the consulate that night, why they were there? >> you must be relieved to learn megyn, that you and katherine herridge and everybody at fox news are wasting your time, it doesn't make a difference how the americans died or whether the american people were misled how they died. this is a scandal not just because four americans were killed, it's not just a scandal because the administration ignored numerous warnings about the growing threat from al-qaeda. it's not just a scandal because they ignored and denied ambassador chris stevens' request for more security or didn't have forces in place to rescue them. it's a scandal for repeate an extended period laid the blame on a youtube video when any person watching events unfold know that wasn't the case. congress has a right to ask these questions and a responsible to ask these questions and secretary clinton has a responsib

me now the former deputy assistant to george w. bush and julie, an assistant to frank lautenberg, what a powerful voice. >> powerful, reasoned, common sense approach from a man who has everything to be bitter about. i'm a victim of gun violence almost kidnapped when i was 18, a shootout at the house, the two guys who perpetrated the crime against me and my mom didn't have legal guns. and my position on gun control is the same as mr. mattioli, he has a harder cross to bear, he lost his son james, i'm here, but a cautioned reasoned common sense approach to gun control is where america should be. we have enough laws, he's right. we don't have the enforcement that we need and also he spoke to mental health. the people who perpetrate these crimes are mentally ill in most cases and criminal, and need help before they act out. >> megyn: nothing else, it should add to the debate. so many in favor of gun control have been somewhat dismissive of the other side and their motives, you know, even the president has suggested that those who gin up fears about this are after ratings or revenue.
